Not only do new airports offer the chance for increased areas of service, but the changing facilities available at large airports can also be seen as a constant push towards new circumstances that all providers of airline services will have to contend with if they want to promote the best quality service that reaches the most customers and makes itself a brand that is worth recognizing and remembering.
Chances are that someone who isn't familiar with air travel in Texas won't know about the Wright Amendment, a piece of legislation which, according to Dallas News, has traditionally capped the outside planes that can make use of Dallas Love Field, as well as limiting where planes from this field can fly.
The concern among airlines appears to be that once this field opens up next October, new flight paths could exist, especially for planes journeying from Mexico. Airports in different areas, including Albuquerque, also seem to be concerned about the implications.
The Albuquerque Journal recently quoted a representative from Southwest Airlines named Michelle Agnew on the impact that this might have on the different modes of future travel changes.
